Interview: Executive Producer Adi Shankar on the Intense Animation & Bold Storytelling of Netflix’s Castlevania Series

14 September 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This past summer was a memorable one for fans of Konami's video game franchise Castlevania. In addition to the release of a new four-episode animated series adaptation of the video games on Netflix, the streaming service also renewed the series for an eight-episode second season, and viewers of the show were treated to a story that took an R-rated approach to violence and a bold path with its storytelling. One of the creative forces behind the new series is Adi Shankar (executive producer of films such as Dredd and The Grey) and I had the opportunity to talk with the filmmaker about collaborating with Sam Deats and Warren Ellis, the freedom of working with Netflix, and much more.

Thanks so much for taking some time to talk with me and congratulations on Castlevania. I wrapped up watching the first season and I absolutely loved it.

Adi Shankar: Amazing, amazing. »

Ed Skrein’s Bold Move to Opt Out of ‘Hellboy’ Over Whitewashing Concerns Ratchets Up Pressure

5 September 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Reversing Hollywood’s decades-long practice of casting white actors in Asian roles has proved vexing. Boycotts haven’t worked. Op-eds have drawn attention to the issue, and social media has magnified the scrutiny of the lack of diversity and inclusion on the big screen.

But last week’s stunning decision by British actor Ed Skrein to drop out of playing a Japanese-American character in the upcoming “Hellboy” reboot is likely to put pressure not only on casting directors but actors themselves, as well as film companies and studios.

Skrein, who declined an interview request, said in a statement that when he accepted the role, he was unaware that the character of Ben Daimio was of Asian heritage. He said the casting announcement caused “understandable upset” and “intense conversation” that prompted him to do what he felt was right. The response to his move has been largely positive, with many people on social media pledging to support other »

Brigitte Nielsen Joins ‘Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets’ Series, Replacing Actor Busted for Child Porn (Exclusive)

14 July 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brigitte Nielsen has been cast in “Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets” superhero-themed TV action series, taking over the villain role vacated by Mark Salling, who was indicted last year for receiving and possessing child pornography.

Shankar, who is independently producing the half-hour show, told Variety that Nielsen plays a “modified version” of Salling’s character. The director re-shot scenes with the Danish-born thesp earlier this month and said “Gods and Secrets” is now in post-production.

“I just kind of reached out to her,” Shankar said, saying he’s been in touch with Nielsen ever since he was trying to put together an all-female movie adaptation of “The Expendables” five years ago.

Nielsen’s casting in “Gods and Secrets” was confirmed by her rep at Henderson Represents Inc. She’s perhaps best known for her turns in ’80s movies “Rocky IV,” “Red Sonya” and “Beverly Hills Cop II.”

Re-shooting the scenes with Nielsen required bringing back other »

‘Hawaii Five-o’ Showrunner on Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park Exits: ‘CBS Was Extremely Generous’

6 July 2017 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Hawaii Five-o” showrunner Peter Lenkov weighed in on the exits of series regulars Grace Park and Daniel Dae Kim on Thursday.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Lenkov said, “Both actors chose not to extend their contracts. CBS was extremely generous and proactive in their renegotiation talks. So much so, the actors were getting unprecedented raises, but in the end they chose to move on. No one wanted to see them go–they are irreplaceable.”

“In our 168 episodes, Hawaii Five-0 has and will continue to showcase one of the most diverse casts on TV: Chi McBride, Jorge Garcia, Mark Dacascos, Ian Anthony Dale, Will Yun Lee, Masai Oka, Dennis Chun, Taylor Wily, Shawn Garnett, Kimee Balmilero, Kekoa Kekumano, Shawn Anthony Thomsen, as well as Daniel and Grace … all of these great talents regulars or recurring. I’m proud of that roster and of our show,” Lenkov concluded. You can read the full statement below.

Newswire: Donnie Yen wants to start a Sleeping Dogs film franchise

3 March 2017 2:58 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

2012’s open-world action game Sleeping Dogs is mostly remembered for being gaming’s latest attempt to nail down the John Wu-esque blend of Hong Kong gunplay and high-stakes kung fu (and for featuring Emma Stone in a supporting role). Now, Rogue One star Donnie Yen wants to revive the gaming franchise as a series of action films.

Sleeping Dogs centers on Wei Shen (played by Will Yun Lee in the game), an undercover cop infiltrating Hong Kong’s Triad gangs. Yen—who made his name in stuff like the Ip Man films and other Hong Kong fare, and whose most recent credit is xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage—would take over the role of Shen for the film, which would presumably involve a lot of shooting people, sliding acrobatically over tables, and kicking folks in the face.

Sleeping Dogs Movie In The Works With Rogue One’s Donnie Yen Attached To Star

3 March 2017 6:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The future of Sleeping Dogs is questionable at best, particularly after the closure of United Front Games and subsequent cancellation of Triad Wars and the ambitious, embryonic sequel, Sleeping Dogs 2.

But just because a property fails in one medium doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t succeed in another; Deadline is reporting that Original Film and Square Enix – the publishing house behind United Front Games – have struck a deal for a live-action movie based on Sleeping Dogs, and it’s currently courting Chinese superstar Donnie Yen to headline. Best known as the IP Man, Yen has found international success recently through the likes of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and action threequel xXx: Return of Xander Cage – two Hollywood tentpoles that fared remarkably well in China thanks to the inclusion of the actor.

With Sleeping Dogs, Yen will have an opportunity to circle back to his roots. Chronicling the journey of Wei Shen, »
